What is a questionable punctate calcific density in the kidney, CT report says that. Also what is a 1.2 CM probable cyst in the lower pole of kidney?

Kidney abnormalities: "calcific densities" in the kidneys usually represent calcifications or stones, depending on any other associated findings they may have mentioned.

Punctate nonobstructing calcific fleck found on left kidney pelvis. I must control stone-mkg w/ Urocit-K. Will this fleck get bigger or pass?

Punctate nonobstructing calcific fleck found on left kidney pelvis. I must control stone-mkg w/  Urocit-K. Will this fleck get bigger or pass?

Stone passable: If stone is described as punctate it is likely only a millimeter or two in diameter which makes it a good bet to pass if it moves into the kidney tube (ureter). If you are on Urocit K (potassium citrate) I assume that you have been diagnosed with a low citrate level and this medication supplements the level which can prevent certain calcium crystals from forming. Key is to have stone monitored, with good hydration ...Read more

Calcified arteries at age 30 are worrisome and suggest at some point blood flow could be reduced to your heart and other organs. Is your blood sugar, blood pressure or cholesterol elevated? Have a physician check out your metabolism. Avoid junk food. ...Read more

I have 6 mm calcification (not stone) in my kidney.Is it possible to pass it or i need something else?

How come not a stone: Most discreet 6mm kidney calcifications are in fact kidney stones. Calcification will not pass if it's within kidney tissue. Can pass if in a calyx or renal pelvis, but this is upper limit of what can pass on it's own. Best to get advice from a urologist. ...Read more

Radiology doctor said i have a "calcification/hyperechogenicity" in my kidney, how serious is it on scale of 1 to 10 and what is the cause of it?

Hyperechogenicity means "high echos" which is a way to describe a bright appearance in an ultrasound. It often implies calcium. Calcium in the kidney could be a stone or vascular in nature.
